Work part-time and help pay for your education

Work Study is a great way to help pay for your education while gaining invaluable experience by working part-time. By participating in the Work Study Program you will learn work skills that are transferable to future career paths. The Federal and State Work Study Programs give you the opportunity to work part-time while going to school. As an employer it is a way to create more opportunities as your salary costs will be subsidized by the Work Study Program.
